blue and white plate

Thanks for the additional pictures. I could confirm what I suspected.
This plate is transfer printed, not hand-painted. It imitates Kangxi porcelain with a spurious Chenghua mark.
The Chinese characters in the mark give the impression that the person writing the characters did not know how to write the Chinese for this mark properly.
The horses, deer and clothing are also not painted as they should if they were that old.

I'm afraid this has little collecting value.

My name is Simmone, I live in Belgium and I am an amateur collector of chinese/japanese porcelain objects. I have recently found some interesting pieces, unfortunately with little damages, and I would like to know your opinion concerning their identification. I will attach the photos for the first plate.
Thank you in advance, I truly appreciate your time and effort.

Best regards,
Simmone

Could you provide the following pictures, please?
- a closup picture of the decoration (very close) to see minute details.
- a partial picture of the bottom area showing the foot rim and some area inside the foot rim
- a closeup of the mark

If possible, please take the pictures in natural lighting, as for example near a window during daytime.
